Cats11-12

New catalogues are under review.

For November, we received 12 new bookseller catalogues. We review a spectacular catalogue of newspapers that shaped the world from Timothy Hughes Rare & Early Newspapers. From England, we take a look at Sophie Schneideman Rare Books' catalogue on food and drink. From the Netherlands, Gert Jan Bestebreurtje Rare Books focuses on travel and naval architecture. German bookseller Antiquariat Banzhaf features architecture and art.

Rare Americana is offered by Kaaterskill Books and David Lesser Fine Antiquarian Books. Joe Rubinfine features signed historical documents from the era of the American Revolution. Old West Books presents Western Americana, while the William Reese Company looks at Latin Americana.

Oak Knoll Books, the “books about books” specialist, has just released their 300th catalogue. Fine printings, bindings, and book arts are the subject for The Veatchs Arts of the Book. The Ten Pound Island Book Company offers a new maritime list.
